    St. Louis is not going anywhere. Just because PC inquired about him does not mean TB is looking to unload him.

    And Brewer has two years left at nearly $4 million per - he'd give PC cap issues.

    We could use St Louis's skill set big time, but he's probably not going anywhere. I'd rather have him than Iginla to be honest. And I believe he's got one more year on his contract. Calgary's asking price for Iginla is gonna be crazy, and you most likely lose him after this season.

    How do you know for sure St. Louis will not be traded?

    Nothing is certain but there has been nothing to suggest Yzerman is shopping him. I mentioned this before but it is about as likely as PC shopping Bergeron. St. Louis is an important cog for that team, is a heart and soul guy, and is currently signed to a cap-friendly contract. Very unlikely to be moved unless someone is prepared to offer a crazy return...

    If given the choice between St. Louis or Iginla, I take MSL all day long.  Still playing at an elite level and under control for 2 more seasons.  I would pay a premium for a player/situatiton like that as compared to paying for an Iginla rental.

    Curtis Glencross would be a good a fit . I wonder what it would take to get him.

    Mark Recchi.  

    And they got Lashoff and Karsums.  

    That worked out so well for them.  

    How can they resist not pulling the trigger on another deal with Boston?

    Badhab, the Recchi deal was done in 2009. They won the Cup two years later.

    Yup.  Also: we dont have a player who is like MSL from a style perspective.  He would add another dimension to this team.

    That's a moot point I believe because he wasn't going to be a UFA at season's end, from what I recall he has another year on his contract.  So they would have been better off just keeping him.  So the answer is yes, they would have been better off with nothing.  They would have gotten more out of Recchi.

    Re: If they go for St Louis

    Martin would be a good fit for Boston then Iggy. Cause he is a more consistent goal scorer and plus the Bruins already have big forwards Lucic and Horton. Bergeron looch and horton size, seguin louis and marchand with speed, and krejci can center the 1st power play unit

    marchand krejci st louis

    lucic bergy seguin

     

    The Bruins at the moment also have a bang up d squad which needs major replacements, a good defensive minded d man for the 5th and 6th spot. Our defence as of late has not been the same since injuries. Chara Hamilton Ference Sieds Johnson Bartowski and Boys is where the bruins are at.

    As of recent rumours Whitney (drawback injure prone) from Edm. is on the bruins radar.

    Recchi didn't want to be part of a rebuild in T-Bay. He was soon to be UFA. Try again my failing friend.

    I don't agree with your Bergeron comparison.  MSL turns 38 in June, Bergeron is 10 years younger.  If we were talking about Stamkos, the argument works, but it appears that Tampa is well on it's way towards a youth movement, whether it has been forced upon them because of injuries, standings, coaching changes, etc....  All of the things you say about Marty are true.  However, this is now Steven's team, not Marty's or Vinnie's.  Is it unlikely, yes!  As Bruins fans we can surely hope that Stevie Y send him the Bruins way.  By the way, has the luster of Stevie Y already worn off?  I can remember everyone all over this guys jock, including many here at bdc, touting him as the next big GM.

    Stamkos is the best player on the team but MSL is the heart and soul. Those are the only 2 untouchables on that team.....well, maybe Hedman.

    I think you forgot one untouchable.  Vinnie!  $7.7 Mil for 7 more years!  He's untouchable with that contract, even with the buyout clause! LOL

    hah.....they should have pawned him off to Montreal last season for a song when they had the chance. Yzerman got greedy and wanted an actual return. Very short sighted.

    Good points.  They wouldnt trade St Louis for 100 cents on the dollar.  We'd have to blow them away.

    I'd consider Subban , 1st rd, 2nd rd.

    On second thought, I'd do it.

    Because...St Louis would be a line 1 winger on this team for this year and the two that follow.  He would instantly cure our PP woes.
